In this chapter, after introducing the topic of “biologized robotics and biomechatronics”, the authors begin by discussing the opportunities and challenges of human‐robot collaboration. They consider the potential applications, forms of interaction as well as hazards and how to avoid them, among others, by defining load limits. After looking ahead at the future of human‐robot collaboration, they go on to present medical technology applications such as endoprostheses and exoskeletons. Here they start by describing the transition from the mechanical to the mechatronic human‐technology interface. The chapter is rounded off by looking at new approaches to recording biosignals, and the combination of functional electrostimulation with actuators, and concludes by introducing the concept of hybrid exoskeletons.
